Hall Place Equestrian Centre in Reading was the venue for Sunshine Tour Dressage and UK Riders Regional Finals in June.

Little Miss Muffet, ridden by Nicky Reynolds, took first place Intro A and was second in Preliminary 7. This combination have worked very hard to achieve these results.

Little Miss Muffet, aka Indy, is five and hadn’t been schooled until Nicky began riding last year. Nicky, from Goose Green, has health problems including brittle asthma and diabetes.

She spent a month in hospital in February and has been grooming and leading Indy from a wheelchair and crutches. Nicky has also recently qualified as a teacher!

Winner of the Prelim 7 competition was Michelle Woolmer from Ecchinswell with a score of 75.0 per cent. Michelle riding Celtic Clover, stable name Tommy, was also placed second Novice 27 with 71.1 per cent.

The pair have recently returned from Dubai where Michelle worked for 13 years as BHS II Instructor and competed showjumping and dressage. Cassilda Courtier-Dutton qualified for UK Riders National Finals at Prelim and Novice levels riding Flicka In Clover. Cassilda goes forward to the Pure Feed Company Finals at Arena UK, near Grantham, in August.

The novice and elementary classes winner was Jennifer Galunszka. Jennifer was riding Wynken for Lady Silsoe from Wyfold near Nettlebed.
